Welcome to Shelby Ricketts P.C.

Shelby Ricketts is an aggressive attorney you can trust to protect your rights.   Most of all, he is a problem solver.

Shelby has practiced law in the Dallas County and federal courts system for over twenty years.  He has been in private practice as well as in corporate legal departments.  Shelby has achieved successful results for clients in cases involving divorce, bankruptcy, probate (wills and estates) lease disputes and a number of other common civil matters.

Shelby’s passion is assisting those who cannot otherwise afford legal representation.  Most of his cases are low-fee or pro bono volunteer matters handled completely free of charge.   Many are cases accepted from the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program, Legal Aid of Northwest Texas, or as an assignment from the county courts of Dallas and Tarrant Counties.

Shelby’s commitment is to carefully review the details of each case he accepts and thoroughly explain the options available.  In some instances, matters can be settled easily and inexpensively by involving a licensed attorney to deal with opposing counsel.  In other circumstances, a more aggressive approach is required.  Either way, Shelby’s experience with how the court system works can help you make informed decisions about how to resolve your case.
